Show Rodgers true spirit of Champs

Published:Tuesday | March 21, 2017 | 12:00 AM

THE EDITOR, Sir:

The argument against allowing Aryamanya Rodgers to participate in the upcoming Boys and Girls' Athletics Championships is that according to the rules of ISSA, "An athlete must be registered before September 30 in order to participate in the championships."

While rules are there to govern us, we must also practise prudence and charity, especially in the field of sports and knowing well of the situation young Rodgers went through.

In the spirit of Champs, in the spirit of charity and youthfulness, I ask those who oppose Mr Rodgers' participation to allow him to foster dreams of triumph so that they can become reality in the land of possibilities.
